Born from the tour company Adventure Myanmar Tours & Incentive, Amazing Hotels and Resorts is fast developing with seven properties of international standards in Myanmar. The chain currently manages seven properties in Ngapali, Bagan, Inle Lake,See Seim, Mandalay, Kaytu and Nyaung Shwe. It also manages two four-star properties under the brand Ananta in Bagan and Inle Lake and launched last year, Alpha Inn, a budget hotel brand which is now present in Mandalay. Most of the hotels are designed in an elegant Asian style thanks to the presence of an architect working for the company.
Amazing Hotels & Resorts will now expand to Kengtung, the capital of the Eastern Shan State. The group just won a tender for a formerly state-owned hotel in Kengtung that was called again following a first attempt to privatise the property two years ago. Amazing Hotels & Resorts will lease Kyaingtong New Hotel for 15 years for US$102,000 a year, according to the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism.
The 108-room hotel will now close for at least three months for renovations, after which it will open under the Amazing brand. Three more properties are currently in development: The Hotel Amazing Mandalay Central is due to open this year with 94 rooms. In 2016/2017, the company will also open the new Amazing Inle Resort with 64 rooms and finally a hotel in the old capital Yangon with a total of 200 rooms.
